The US ambassador to Sri Lanka said yesterday that the US will remain engaged with Sri Lanka despite some differences of opinion on the political front.

In a message released in Colombo to mark America's Independence Day, the US envoy Patricia Butenis noted that the Sri Lankan government has made progress on the resettlement issue and post-war development.

Butenis noted, however, that there still remains a lot to be done and her government stands ready to help Sri Lanka to move forward.

She also said that her government will continue with the development programmes with the public and private sector in Sri Lanka while helping especially the communities most affected by the conflict.
